Default No release date yet?

I assume there's still no release date for T5. Am I correct?

Enquiring minds think alike. June 2007 has come and past, a status update would be nice.

CDRom with PDFs out around end of the year with print version to be released probably 2nd Quarter 2008. That's the latest from Marc, but isn't set in stone.

This is probably for the best as rushing it for a special anniversary, then ending up with a sub par product wouldn't do anybody any good...

I think it would be a good idea for some of this fairly formed material to be out for testing by component.

You'd be surprised how little good it would do. Most people who claim they want to playtest the material just end up reading it over and not doing anything with it, including commenting on it much less bothering to play it.

Currently though, it's in the hands of a small core group that is actively working with Marc on the project and actively providing feedback.

I was surprised how little good it would do.

At least there appears to be something resembling a real timetable now. Maybe we'll hear some news soon.

Well you do usually get feedback on how it breaks compatibility with previous versions

I'm also hoping for some news soon...

Feh you were honestly lucky if you got that and often it was in the form of a frothing diatribe about how Marc has no clue how Traveller5 should be...
